Militant organizations held a protest rally while the promulgation of the judgement on US Marine Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton was being read at the Olongapo Regional Trial Court last December 1.
Pemberton was found guilty of committing homicide in connection with the death of Filipino transgender Jennifer Laude last year.
He was sentenced to a minimum of six year and a maximum of 12 years for the crime.
While declaring partial victory over the conviction of the US soldier, the militants said that he should be jailed in a Philippine correctional facility.
They warned that the US government may initiate moves to take custody of the convict and that the Philippine government may agree to such machinations.
They were proven correct when the US and Philippine government immediately agreed to transport Pemberton to a US facility inside Camp Aquinaldo last night.
The move is contrary to the explicit instructions of the court to bring Pemberton to a national jail such as the National Bilibid Prisons.
